The attack on migrant workers in Gujarat and their mass exodus has Congress written all over it. To provoke, instigate and divide is the modus operandi of the Congress Party and it will remain a pattern in the run-up to the 2019 election.
Tens of thousands of men from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh went to Gujarat in search of jobs and better lives with their families have been forced to flee. They are running away scared of their lives in trains and buses after the Congress party's threats.
On September 28, a 14-month-old girl was allegedly raped in a village near Himmatnagar town of Sabarkantha district, around 100 km from Ahmedabad. One Ravindra Sahu, a laborer hailing from Bihar and working in a local ceramic factory, was arrested the same day for the toddler's rape, the police had said.
Protests erupted in the districts of Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad, Patan, Sabarkantha, and Mehsana targeting establishments of migrant workers and demanding that the accused be hanged. The exodus and attacks have come after hate messages started circulating on social media calling people to come together and take revenge for the baby.
Days before this protest erupted, the blue-eyed boy of Gujarat Congress, Congress leader and MLA Alpesh Thakore made a divisive speech in which he was clearly seen creating 'Gujarati vs non-Gujarati' divide. Here:
In which he is heard instigating violence, saying:
"These people who have come from outside, commit crimes over here, and then beat our villagers in their own villages and then go back to their respective places. For them, they have jobs over here in Maruti and other companies but our people are dying of starvation. I want to give an ultimatum to the Maruti manager if you want to come here, think 100 times to enter here."
Is this guy a goon or a politician?
Alpesh Thakor is not only an MLA of Congress but is a poster boy and has been recently made In-Charge of Bihar Congress nominated by none other than Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
Nobody in the local Congress was able to understand the logic behind this step. Party leaders of the State haven’t been able to fathom why Thakor is needed in Bihar? Before this, Rahul Gandhi had appointed Shaktisinh Gohil, another leader from Gujarat, as the Bihar in-charge. Perhaps, this was suggested by RJD supremo Lalu Yadav, their bigger and all-time ally in Bihar and Congress has very few seats to fight on there.
The moment Alpesh was made Bihar In charge of the Congress, he went to Bihar and met Mr. Lalu Yadav. As per JDU spokesperson Dr. Ajay Alok on Republic TV, it was Lalu Yadav who suggested Alpesh start a campaign like Maharashtra, throw out North Indians and Biharis, from Gujrat. Once this happens, PM will find it very difficult to come to UP and Bihar. This was the grand plan and Rahul Gandhi is directly involved in this dirty politics.
They were aiming to kill 3 birds with one arrow:
- In Gujarat say that we are fighting for Gujarat's pride.
- In Bihar in UP create hatred against BJP saying: see how MODI's GUJRAT treats North Indians.
- Knowing that the hard-working laborers from North India, who don't snitch away the employment rather they fill the gap, are the backbone of many industries in Gujarat, chasing away the labor force will affect the industries and create a negative image of MODI's Gujarat Model.
They were possibly also hoping to possibly instigate a rift between the BJP and JDU, and force Nitish Kumar to walk out of NDA.
After having set the plan, they were looking for an opportunity.
Days after Alpesh Thakor's hate speech, a protest started over rape of a toddler by a man from Bihar. Slowly the situation goes out of hand. An online hate campaign #BihariBhagaoGujaratBachao by men close to Alpesh Thakor started. They were campaigning to go door to door and give the death threat to people from north India. Attacks on migrant workers continued and so do the threats and politicians from Congress were seen everywhere leading it. His clear involvement was confessed on camera by a man close to Alpesh Thakor.
The Rahul Gandhi tweets this:
His complicity is proven by his bigotry and no action against Alpesh Thakor.
When the worst of language and the most violent threat and sudden attacks are launched on the non-Gujaratis by the Congress leader and Congress cronies, the Congress leaders give a statement that the "BJP Govt in Gujarat has failed to maintain law & order to provide security to non-Gujaratis."
What absolute and dirty hypocrisy it is?
The Gujarat police officials identified Congress' local Taluka Panchayat member MV Thakore threatening non-Gujaratis to leave the state in a video with Republic, the Home Minister of Gujarat, Pradeep Sinh Jadeja, appealed to the migrants to stay back in the state and said:
"I condemn this incident. The CM, the DGP is working day and night. Police are doing the interrogation of the arrested accused. Urging people not to leave Gujarat. Everyone’s security is our priority. Please trust us and don't leave Gujarat".
The police officials have arrested over 300 people in connection with the attacks, many Congress leaders are behind bars including people who were seen in the video with MV Thakore. However, MV Thakore is absconding as of now.
Congress MLA and AICC secretary in charge of Bihar, Alpesh Thakor, who is also president of the Thakor Sena, which has been blamed for the attacks, told the Indian Express: "I appeal for peace to all those behind these incidents. There could be members from our community and Sena but no such instruction (to launch attacks) was given out from our side (Thakor Sena). This is to only defame us and the Sena. We are only aiming at peace and employment in the state. We demand that within 72 hours, the withdrawal of cases against members of his community who were “innocent.”
Wow! First, instigate riots and then condemn them. Being a shameless lying hypocrite is a quality shared across Congress.
Congress party is a party that propagates only chaos and hatred. This is Congress's attempt to pit Indians against Indians ahead of 2019. We saw what happened in Bhima Koregaon. Before the Karnataka election, Congress tried to bring in a very socially, politically divisive law to divide the Lingayat community and the larger Hindu community. It is to be seen that how much will they divide? How many they will break?
I have said it before, and I reiterate. If Congress knows how many dead bodies it is away from power, it will swiftly lay as many and run over them to grab power. They would instead break India into pieces than stay away from power.
